Subject: flat nosed bullets
theBird    6/29/2008 12:49:36 PM
I was reading a book from the late Jim Cirillo about how he found the best stopping power came from wadcutter rounds, because unlike round nosed bullets they actually destroyed tissue, instead of simply parting it. While wadcutters don't load well into an auto-loader, there are semi-wad cutters such as the the .40 S&W and the 10 mm auto, which load fine. When limited to FMJ only ammo, it seems like these semi-wadcutter type rounds would offer the best stopping power. Would a military handgun in 40 S&W or 10 mm auto or even .357 sig work?
